Chief's Memorial Scholarships

Sheriff Scott H. Jenkins is pleased to announce that Culpeper County Sheriff's Office is again providing an opportunity in 2017 for two graduating seniors from Culpeper- one from Eastern View High School and one from Culpeper County High School- to receive a $500 scholarship to a college of their choice while pursuing a degree in Law Enforcement. The scholarship is fully funded by donations to Culpeper County Sheriff's Office.


The CCSO Chief's Memorial Scholarship has been established in memory of two past Chief Deputies of Culpeper County Sheriff's Office. Former Chief Deputy Russell Lane died on January 3, 2013. Lane was known for his commitment to the youth of Culpeper through his extensive work with the Law Explorers program. Former Chief Deputy Richard C. Woody died November 27, 2012. Woody was a known leader who encouraged Sheriff Scott Jenkins

to obtain his degree while working in Law Enforcement, just as Woody did during his service in Law Enforcement. Both men were well respected in the Culpeper Law Enforcement community and served with honor.


The scholarship will be awarded based on the applicant's completion and submission of the application provided below. The application deadline is May 2, 2017. Please mail completed applications to:


Sergeant David Myers
Community Relations Officer
14023 Public Safety Court
Culpeper, VA 22701


The 2017/2018 CCSO Chief's Memorial Scholarship recipients will be determined by May 16, 2017, and will be notified thereafter.
